          ITEM NO. 1Chairman Byrd called the meeting to order at 12:30 p.m.


          ITEM NO. 2Mr. Charles Bateman, representing Kimco Burlington, LP, presented an application for final plat approval of the University Commons Subdivision.  The property is located on the west side of University Drive (Western Loop) north of Interstate 85/40 approximately 900 feet south of Rural Retreat Road as shown on plans by The John R. McAdams Company, Inc., dated August 31, 2005, and containing eight lots.


      This was a City item.


      Mr. Bateman stated that on behalf of his clients, Kimco and Wakefield Associates, he wished to thank the Commission for attending the special meeting.  He stated that during the process of reviewing tax requirements for processing like-kind exchanges, his clients realized that they had not submitted the necessary applications for subdividing the property.  In order to meet a September 15 deadline for complying with laws governing the exchange of properties, it was necessary to get the approval for the final plat before the September Commission meeting.




      Staff recommended approval of the final plat.  Planning Director Harkrader stated that the plat was in order and complies with the previously approved Conditional zoning requirements.


      Commission Member ­­­­­Hargrave made a motion to recommend approval of the final plat.  Lynn Cowan seconded the motion.  The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the final plat.


      The Commission found that the plat as presented met all requirements of the Subdivision Regulations.



      There being no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 12:35 p.m.
